How each frees the other is the stuff of Free Willy, which is as engaging as such films can be without offering rude surprises.

There are extremely touching moments between Jesse and mystical Randolph, who seems to understand just about everything; and, more tellingly, between Jesse and mechanic Jim.

Actually, the film's more serious side is beautifully balanced by the joy we experience as both Jesse and Willy come into their own.
